June 1st 1865 Thursday

This day has been set apart by President Johnson, & Gov. Brough as a day of fasting and prayer on account of the death of President Lincoln.  We went with Mr. Dean & family to the village and heard a sermon from Mr. Wolf of the Methodist Episcopal Church.  We expected to go to the Station from the Church & so home by the evening train.  Mrs. Lewis however very kindly insisted upon our stopping at her house for some refreshments.  We there met Mr & Mrs Souder & there we bade good bye to sister Polly & Annie — Mr. Dean took us to New England — after waiting more than an hour, the train came and we were glad to speed our way homeward — at Scotts Landing Mrs. Dawes took the train for Marietta & I arrived at home just at early candle lighting — after supper, but had tea and the nicest of strawberries —
